"I have a great passion for my profession," shares Dr. Dronsky. "I feel that it is an honor and a privilege to take care of patients and to have them entrust me with their health. Sometimes, in fact, my friends and family reveal to me that they think I care too much about my patients and their outcomes. They see that I spend days and nights at the hospital caring for people. I do not think that a physician, especially a surgeon, can care too much. Every decision I make, every recommendation I give, and every operation I do, has incredible importance. I have always felt this way, and I always plan to practice medicine in this fashion.”
